Overview

Director Benjamin Avila delivers this semi-autobiographical drama centered on the experiences of an Argentinean youth who returns to his home country from exile in 1979, and is forced to take on an assumed identity as his revolutionary parents plot to dismantle the military dictatorship that holds the country's citizens in the grip of fear. Years after fleeing Argentina in fear, 12-year-old Juan (Teo Gutiérrez Moreno) quietly returns home with his parents Horacio (César Troncoso) and Charo (Natalia Oreiro). In order to ensure their true identities remain carefully hidden as they plot their uprising, Juan's parents claim to hail from the north part of the country. Meanwhile, Juan enrolls in the local school under the name "Ernesto." By day, the likable young boy makes numerous friends in the classroom, and even catches the eye of a pretty girl. But as Juan does his best not to break role, his parents and his idiosyncratic uncle Beto (Ernesto Alterio) use Beto's Buenos Aires-based chocolate peanut company as their secret headquarters. All the while, the young boy fights to reconcile his deep-rooted desire to see freedom prevail with his mourning of the childhood that was never meant to be.
